Fans in New York never want to abandon thoughts of the postseason this early into any season. As frustrated as they may be, the hope of a postseason run remains in the minds of the fans of both New York NFL teams.
NFL football is always looked at as a violent sport, and it is due to the hard-hitting, big-time smacks, and all around tackling. One big problem is when some coaches and/or players take it a bit too far and start getting too serious.
The NFL isn’t always fun and games as sometimes it can lead to some scary, frightening and downright sad situations. This week was filled with court cases, injuries and Europe getting NFL action that they may not even want anymore.
Things are starting to get a little hotter in the NFL as the midway point of the season arrives. Drew Brees and the Saints are marching along as one of the best teams in the NFC. Calvin Johnson absolutely dominated the Dallas Cowboys while Dez Bryant blew up at his own teammates.
The NFL can actually bring about a wide range of emotions all in the course of a couple of days. The New England Patriots brought about confusion and anger. The Green Bay Packers brought about fear and concern. The Tennessee Titans brought about tears and sadness.
There were a large number of injuries in Week 7 of the 2013 NFL season, and some of them proved to be quite serious. Some teams are really worried though because a few of the injuries happened to back-up players that were already filling in for injured starters.
With the midway point of the season almost here, the AFC is a strange place to be. On Sunday, the Patriots welcomed back Rob Gronkowski, but lost their second game of the season. The fans of the Indianapolis Colts welcomed back their shunned quarterback. Finally, the Kansas City Chiefs remained unbeaten.
When I first heard the cacophonous call for Daniel Snyder to change the name of his football team, I cringed. It felt like the sport we worshiped since childhood was under siege, crushed by the tide of groupthink.
With the Colts and Broncos squaring off this week on Sunday Night Football, some are wondering if Indy, at home with a 4-2 record, can deal the juggernaut Broncos their very first loss of the season. Is this the week Denver falls?
Injuries can really hurt a team, and the later they come in the season, the worse they are. The Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints both got some big scares on Sunday, but one team is looking to fare better than the other. In Denver, a leader is returning but he has to win back the respect of his teammates.
